Would be interesting to see if Slack get added on this site under Amazon 🤔 EDIT: Looks like that will be Whole Foods

Cool concept but far from the "definitive" list. I'm only seeing 15 acquired startups listed for all of 2016. How are you sourcing/updating this list, @naeemol? Community submissions could be a natural fit, giving credit to the first person to post about an acquisition.

@rrhoover Yes, since I'm running it alone, the list is not extensive. However, community submissions is a nice idea with crediting back to the first submitter. I'll see what can I do about that. Thanks for your suggestion Ryan, appreciate that.

@naeemol you bet and great start! You could also consider crawling Crunchbase or other sources where acquisition are reported.

Cool product! The UX is kind of confusing though. I was expecting to see companies that were acquired on the homepage not the companies who did the acquiring. If that makes sense.

Looks like you can add Whole Foods to Amazon's page now 😎

it's hardly definitive when Alphabet has 10, Apple has one, Alibaba has one...
